Every village in Andalucía has a tale of hidden treasure - gold and jewels of untold wealth left behind by Moors and Jews in their rush to escape Spain in 1492. They intended to reclaim their fortune once their exile had ended. But they never returned.

These riches are still to be found in hidden caves, or behind an old fountain, or under the gate of an enchanted orchard. All are guarded by magic spells and secured by charms and talismans and so remain undiscovered.

If any of this rings true to you then click the link below and get your copy of Tales of the Alhambra by Washington Irving who spent months here in 1829 when the place was all but abandoned.
